What's New With Parent U?

After a summer full of planning, preparation, and suntan lotion, Parent U is back! We are excited to announce that we have 21 new partners this year, which means that our fall programming will be our best yet. We can't wait for you to see what we have in store.

This year, we also plan to hold the majority of our events in clusters, which means that a workshop from each strand (social, academic, and health and wellness) will happen at the same location at the same time. This is a unique opportunity to cultivate a more interdisciplinary approach to learning, as well as allowing for more interactions between members of our community.

And as always, every event is open to the public and free of charge. Unless otherwise noted, registration is not required. Childcare and transportation is available upon request. For either, call Stephanie 828-350-6117.

In The Meantime, Check Out Our Upcoming Events:

How To Help Your Kids With Math (UNC Asheville Math Department): Don’t worry--we won’t make you relearn long division! But math skills are essential to the success of children growing up in today’s world. You can help kids improve their math skills by learning how to ask the right questions so they arrive at the answers on their own - and this workshop will teach you how do just that.

Bedtime Routines (Triple P Parenting): This discussion group gives positive parenting strategies to help you develop a good bedtime routine. You will discuss common bedtime problems and skills that will help children get into a routine. You’ll learn how to keep track of sleep patterns to understand them and strategies for preventing these problems. Finally, you’ll design a plan for developing good bedtime routines in your family.

Complete Kids (Complete Nutrition): Staying healthy can be hard when the whole family is busy. This workshop will review nutrition and exercise options suitable for kids of all ages and fitness levels. A special focus will be placed on exercises that can be done at home while still having fun!
